, and also what you would expect him to say, the older brother, tamerlan, was the driving force behind these terrorist attacks. based on what the investigators are getting from dzhokhar, this government sore tells me that the brothers, according to dzhokhar, seem to be self-radicalized, self-starters. they were motivated by the driving train of thought was jihadist thought. and all the governments -- i'm sorry all the political or religious implications that entails the idea being, of course, that they thought they construed islam to be under attack and needed to fight back. that's what they're saying based on initial interviews, preliminary interviews with dzhokhar. >> where he's speaking, communicating by writing, by hand signals, nodding? >> not speaking. communicating through nodding, through writing and other ways of nonverbal. he has that bullet wound to his throat. he can't really speak. he spoke one word in that interview with the magistrate yesterday. >> no. >> he said no. and the magistrate said let the record reflect that i believe the defendant, the suspect, is saying no. h
. what role is the family, tamerlan's wife, what role will they play in furthering this investigation along especially if the mom is giving interviews saying she believes the boys are innocent and they are basically being framed? >> the interviews with all of the family members as well as friends and acquaintances will be an important part to build that mosaic of information to allow us to truly understand these two brothers and what led them to conducting monday's attack. the mother is particularly fascinating because when she became increasingly devout tamerlan gravitated towards her and there is an interesting question about what influence she had over tamerlan and the influence he had over his younger brother. >> and there are reports of the side story that friends of tamerlan think he may have been involved in a triple murder that took place in 2011 that took the life of one of his american friends, someone described as his best friend. what are authorities saying about that investigation because it was a cold case? >> i just spoke a little while ago to the district attorney's of

tamerlan, the older brother, throws a package, a big package our witnesses say, at police. we now know that that was another pressure cooker bomb exactly same device that was deployed against the boston marathon, the device that we have seen the horrific results of. he throws that at police and apparently it functions, it detonates. why don't we have dozens of injured police officers from that explosion in the middle of that shootout? well, apparently what happened as he tossed it, the lid came off. now, the pressure cooker device is based on explosives building up so much pressure that it explodes the container which is supposed to be airtight but when the lid flipped off what you got was a big boom and a big bang and explosives go to the point of least resistance. so these explosives have somewhere to go, which was out into the air without blowing up the container. but i can recall hearing on the police radio last night them screaming over the radio "loud explosion, big explosion here at the scene." and that was probably that main charge. now, when they found tamerlan's body and they

government had asked the united states to investigate the deceased brother, tamerlan tsarnaev back in 2001 and the fbi did, in fact, interview the family and him and look into his background. peter doocy is following that story in washington. what did the fbi do back then? >> heather, the fbi says they spoke to suspect number two, tamerlan tsarnaev two years ago at the request of a foreign government who thought he might have possible extremist ties. the fbi combed through databases looking at phone calls, internet activity, travel history, known associates. they also say they did interview tamerlan and some family members, although at this point we don't know which ones and after all that, they found nothing. at the beginning of 2011, he was clean. no evidence of terror activity, foreign or domestic. so case closed. although the fbi did tell this foreign government who reached out that if any further concerns came up, check back in and they would circle back with this amateur boxer in boston. but this foreign government never did check back in. although we have interesting information to
brother, the 26-year-old tamerlan tsarnaev, had posted on his youtube account. we're going to show you that in just a few moments. stand by for that. first, i want to update all of our viewers on the surviving suspect, the younger brother, 19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev. he's still hospitalized in what doctors describe as serious but stable condition. federal officials say he has injuries to his throat. he's unable to speak. he could be charged, though, by federal prosecutors as early as today. right at his hospital bedside. you just heard that from the attorney general of massachusetts, martha coakley, in our interview here in boston. for more, though, on what's going on, let's bring in our crime and justice correspondent joe johns. he's working his sources over at the justice department. the fbi, elsewhere, what are officials telling you, joe, about this proceeding? truly extraordinary proceeding that could happen at the hospital at the suspect's bedside? >> well, wolf, our sources have told us it's possible we could see charges against this suspect today, but there's no guarantee, an

about the fbi's prior look at the older brother who was killed, tamerlan tsarnaev? and is the fbi facing criticism is now? >> reporter: oh, yes. absolutely i think you're going to see an intense focus from capitol hill on this. and a lot of questions for the fbi. what we learned yesterday is that the fbi did have prior information about the older brother, tamerlan, that the russian intelligence service had had asked the fbi to investigate him in 2011 saying he was a follower of radical islam. the fbi says they interviewed tamerlan. they questioned members of his family, looked into public databases, and concluded they had no evidence of -- no hard evidence of islamic activity. now what's interesting -- radical islamic activity or anything cripple nal. now what's interesting in january of 2012 he gets a visa, flies to russia for six months, stays there. then he comes back to the united states and within a month he opens up this youtube account that's filled with islamic jihadi postings and radical prophecies that clearly would indicate sympathies for the jihad cause. did the fbi even noti
